The initial engagement excitement
and celebrations are starting to sink in, and that means wedding planning is in
One of the more light-hearted
wedding planning “tasks” is asking your closest friends and family members to
stand behind you on your big day in your bridal party.
Your friends and family have been
with you each step of the way – from the proposal to the engagement party – so thank
them with a “proposal”’ of your own!
not only add to the wedding buzz, but they’re also a fun way to thank your crew
in advance for being there for you on your big day.
Here are 6 creative ways to ask
your bridesmaid to be in your bridal party:
Nothing says celebration quite like champagne! Break out the custom labels on
your favorite champagne for a festive gift for your bridesmaids.
Cards are a classic and great
keepsake. Kick your card game up a notch with a scratch-off card and a hidden
message for your bridesmaids. Scratch-off cards can be found through online
vendors, like Etsy, or bought in-store at most local or national brand
Don’t have a specific idea in
mind? Give a little bit of everything in a “bridesmaid box.” Throw together a
bottle of wine, card, pictures, jewelry, makeup – anything that embodies your
relationship with your bridesmaids!
It’s always a good idea to ask
your bridesmaids with something that incorporates into the wedding like a piece
of jewelry they’ll be wearing with their bridesmaids attire.
Who doesn’t love receiving
flowers for a special occasion? Get your bridesmaids in wedding mode by asking
them with a pretty bouquet of flowers.
6. Bridal Brunch
You can always give an experience, as opposed to a gift. Gather
your future bridesmaids for brunch and “pop” the question to the group!
Don’t forget to have your groom
start thinking about his groomsmen! If your groom wants to do a little more
than just a text message to ask his crew, have him consider taking them to
their groomsmen fitting. That’s about as upfront as it gets! Check out Savvi’s
website for groomsmen fitting locations and expertise.
